7.    LONG-TERM DEBT

        As of December 31, 2005 and 2006, long-term debt consists of the following (in thousands):

 
  2005
  2006
Note payable to CoBank, ACB by ATN under a $50 million term loan   $ 50,000   $ 50,000
Line of Credit, payable to CoBank under a $20 million revolving credit facility     4,000

Less current portion     165    
   
 
Total long term debt   $ 55,585   $ 50,000
   
 

        On September 15, 2005, ATN, as borrower, entered into a Credit Agreement with CoBank, ACB (the "CoBank Credit Agreement"). The CoBank Credit Agreement provides a $50 million term loan (the "Term Loan") and a $20 million revolving credit facility (the "Revolver Facility") and is collateralized by, among other things, a pledge of all of the GT&T stock owned by ATN. The Term Loan has principal repayments deferred until the maturity of the loan on October 31, 2010. Interest on the Term Loan is payable on a quarterly basis at a fixed annual interest rate of 5.85%, net of any patronage payments received by the Company from the bank. Amounts outstanding under the Revolver Facility accrue interest at a rate equal to (at the Company's option): (i) LIBOR plus a margin ranging from 1.25% to 1.50% or (ii) a variable rate of interest as defined within the Revolver Facility plus 1%.

        ATN used the proceeds from the $50 million Term Loan, drew $7.0 million from the Revolver Facility and used $12.1 million of its existing cash on hand in order to acquire 95% of the outstanding equity of Commnet (totaling approximately $59.3 million, including transaction fees) and to repay $10.0 million of outstanding debt under ATN's previous credit facility with Banco Popular (the "Banco Credit Facility").

        During December 2005, the Company repaid $3.0 million of the amounts drawn from the Revolver Facility.

        During 2006, the Company drew $22.0 million from the Revolver Facility in order to partially fund the 2006 Commnet Acquisitions as well as the acquisition of Sovernet and repaid all amounts

outstanding with the proceeds of the 2006 Equity Offering which was completed during the third quarter of 2006.

        The CoBank Credit Agreements contain certain affirmative and negative covenants on behalf of ATN and its subsidiaries (including Commnet) that are typical for loan facilities of this type. Among other things, these covenants restrict ATN's ability to incur additional debt in the future or to incur liens on its property. ATN has also agreed to maintain certain financial ratios under the facilities, including a total leverage ratio (debt to EBITDA) of two to one or less; a debt service coverage ratio (EBITDA to debt service) of three to one or more; an equity to assets ratio of 0.4 to one or more; and a specified leverage ratio for Commnet that changes over time. As of December 31, 2006, the Company was in compliance with the covenants of the CoBank Credit Facilities.

        In December 2001, ATN entered into a $2.5 million financing agreement with U.S. Bancorp Equipment Finance, Inc., which was collateralized by property of ATN and its subsidiaries. The loan was repaid in full during 2006 with the proceeds of the sale of the collateralized property.

        Future maturities of long-term debt at December 31, 2006 are as follows (in thousands):

For the year ended December 31,

2008
